Ford refers to the 4.6/ 5.4 stuff as 'cammer in many areas, including the Performance Parts book.
Nice set of passes on the Escort this weekend. Did you guys test either before Richmond or stay over Monday? Also, what about that welder(lol) driving the car, didn't either of the Cunningham team drivers want to run that quick?
We actually didn't get a chance to test at all.....(well 4 laps at Capitol and I shook it like a A/FC on all four passes)that's why Jerry was driving, Jim hasn't stepped out of the seat, we just didn't have the opportunity to get him some seat time before the event. Richmond was pretty much our test session. We were hoping to run at the Grove, but that didn't work out due to the rain out and scheduling issues. If we had we might have had the first ford in the 6.60's. This was with the combination that we ran in Pomona and Pheonix that ran a .95, I had someone who seems to know what they are doing (LMAO...couldn't resist Curt) do some head work (obviously he knew what he was doing) and we put the motor together with some new parts. If we had known that there would be an extra month due to the weather we could have had something for the big boys.
Racemaster...until I get a letter or document from the NHRA stating that the B-441 head is approved for competition in the NHRA I have to concentrate on the E-460. We don't have the time, personnel or money to develop a non-approved part.
Stand by Ford Fans....we will give you something to cheer about in 2007.

That engine is actually a Windsor headed (Canfield) 302 crate engine.
The bigger news is the new Boss Mustang and Truck engine. It will be an SOHC with dual plugs with 5.8 liter for the Mustang and 6.2 for the F-150. It is also 7 liter capable. It is not related to the Modular any in any way. It is similar in size to the old 427 Cammer. It has bigger bore centers, and better flowing heads.
Yes, we plan on some extensive testing in January and Febuary.
how about a crazy paint job....you guys don't seem to have a sponor so plez run with it thier are not many cool painted up sponsor rides out thier...i like stanfields scheam thought...i really like hugger orange:D

Just wondering what going to be used for power? Last word out of Maryland (this week) was that in house engine program was still dead in the water with no new engines even close to being put together. Not even the best of the best in pro stock could pull off what it would take to get things out on the track by Jan. I feel bad for Jimmy. More disappointment............
Hate to say it Tom, . . but he's right.
No team can take an entire year off, ..have their engine builder sit
around and not build a single engine for that year, .. slap together
some new parts and qualify for pro stock.
Your guy should have been pounding the engine parts he had on they dyno
for the last year if for anything just to learn what makes a pro stock tick.
The heads I looked at from "kong" would have qualified this year, no
different then the DRCE stuff I've worked on.They just needed a few tweeks.
I wish Jim would listen to you, .. you're the only one that got that car
down the track in the last year.

I'm confused...I thought that the taller, older guy on the team ( I forget his name, but I've seen him with a couple of other teams over the past few years) was making the calls on the car while Toby "tuned" the motor

Hey Curtis, How you doing? I've been following this thread for awhile and finally had to chime in. This might just be my ego talking but, just to set the record straight. Except for the motor, everything else on the car has been my call. The input from Jerry Haas was very helpful with the 4-link in Richmond. Been out there too long and working too hard to allow someone else take credit for it. Good or bad. Have a good turkey day. Talk with you soon. Paul
